Sarah Huckabee Sanders is one tough cookie — but don’t call her mom a “southern hamburger.” Sarah will brush it off, but her mother will NOT.
Earlier this year, SNL used the term “southern hamburger” to disparage Sanders’ weight. The backlash was immediate among conservative circles, but the harassment didn’t end.
This past Saturday, SNL featured a pantsless depiction of Sarah Sanders rubbing her breasts and gyrating around the press briefing room. Meanwhile, two newspaper reporters doubled-down on the attacks against the press secretary’s appearance.
LA Times reporter David Horsey even called Sanders a “slightly chunky soccer mom” and ran a cartoon calling her a “big mother.”

And that did NOT please Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ REAL mother.
After seeing the piece in the Times, Mrs. Huckabee wrote a SCATHING letter to the journalist that the LA Times refused to print. The journalist did, however, tell a New York Times reporter, “She was mad, but she was good about it. It wasn’t anything like the really nasty stuff.”
OF COURSE Mrs. Huckabee wasn’t nasty — that’s not her family’s style. They’re classy, Christian people. But lord knows that reporter was probably given a good fright when he got that letter.
We all know, you never mess with mama bear. She’ll protect her cubs.
Comment “go mom!” and SHARE if you love the fact that Sarah’s mom is fighting for her daughter!
Sarah can handle herself, but it’s wonderful to see her mom step in when she feels wronged.
